A quick update and some pics.
Blacked out and HID retrofitted JDM.
Side by side.
Not lit-just used flash-I love how the painted cutoff shield barely comes through!
Thats all for now. The wiring harness is next. We decided to keep the amber for the turn signal. Masking off the bottom section of the bezel was the hard part. The section in the corner that looks like black paint is actually more of that black reflective tape. I didn't get any pics of that yet-probably will once the lights are mounted. Sharp eyes will note that the blacked out light isn't resealed yet-this is because the paint isn't fully dry and I didn't want any hazing while the paint cures and out-gasses. More to come tomorrow-probably later in the evening!
